Is It Just Me???

Today, I've been on the first day of a four day Summer School at Art Van Go with Bobby Britnell.  I've been looking forward to it for ages, and I've had a really good day and looking forward to the rest of the course.  I did intend to post some pictures of the work we produced today (there was a lot of it!) but unfortunately my photographs didn't turn out very well, and I've a feeling you wouldn't be impressed.  I'll try and get some decent ones over the next few days, but in the meantime, I felt it was time I posted about something.  So here it is.  It might not be of much interest to you, but it obviously WAS to me.
After changes in their line up, much acrimony between band members, an absence of five years, spells in the Priory for rehabilitation, and finally reconciliation ............
The Darkness are back!!

A lot less lycra,
more ridiculous moustaches
a lot more tattoos
but still the same loud guitars, falsetto singing and rock posturing,
and, of course,  the obligatory parade around the audience on a big guy's shoulders for "Love On The Rocks".
It was a brilliant night - I grinned all through the gig - and even my mate Jane, who I'd press-ganged into coming with me, said she enjoyed it.  
I wonder if I'll EVER grow up.

 Is It Just Me? - The Darkness


  1. Cool! Can't beat a good dose of The Darkness :-)

  2. hopefully you will NEVER grow probably won't be impressed but I am very excited as I am going to see Take That at Wembley on June 30th!!!!

  3. Don't you dare grow up! Might pop in to AVG and see you tomorrow.

  4. No you can't grow up cos as I'm always remind you, whatever age you are, I'm younger so don't you dare.

  5. Growing up is no fun! I was happy to hear The Darkness are back but I haven't been able to see them this time round ... yet! :)
